    I might have to try moving the power cables up. I don't think there is any danger in the sag, but the aesthetics kind of drive me crazy.

    GPU Brace?

    My 1080 strix is sagging. Anyone have any ideas on how to add some support to the rear? I'm looking for something as minimal as possible, and all black.

    Well said. A 40 lane cpu resolved my specific issue. Still think overall it is poor design, as I don't see any reason why m.2 OR u.2 could be enabled, instead of having to enable them both. This...

    Problem with that is the m.2 slot on this board is directly under the first PCIE slot. I tried putting in a hyper kit, but it prevents the graphics card from fully seating in the slot.

    I'd say slot 3. Should be x16/x16/x8. I'm not an expert though, so you might want to verify that with someone at asus.

    My understanding is when the u.2 port is enabled, slots run at x16/x8/x8/x8. So basically, yes, you'd still have the first slot running at x16, but not the second. A pcie 750 rather than an u.2...

    Depends on if you have a 40 lane or 28 lane CPU. Which are you considering?

    It comes down to when the u.2 port is enabled, the m.2 port is also enabled. You can enable just the m.2 port, but the same is not true of the u.2 port. It enables both, automatically taking x8...

    An update on this one. I picked up a 6850k with 40 lanes, and the issue is gone. So was due to a cpu with 28 lanes. The math still doesn't make sense to me, but it is what it is. Case closed.

    Yes, I am using GPU-Z during heavy activity to verify the link speed. I believe the cause of this is due to the x8 bandwidth being used when I enable the u.2 port. My other board does not have an...

    If you can explain to me why I can't run a single graphics card at x16, along with the u.2 / m.2 ports enabled (x8 together), on a 28 lane CPU, i'll gladly change my review. Especially considering...

    When I enable the U.2 SSD, the bandwidth of PCIE Slot 1 is limited to x8 instead of running...
